Try a New Technique

Good morning, today I am sharing my card for Fussy and Fancy's Try a New Technique Challenge. I have to say that new techniques alway scare me. I always feel like I am going to mess things up and I hate waisting my supplies. I decided to use my Score Pal to emboss the background paper. Do you think I went overboard on the Glam Rocks? Maybe I did, but I still think it looks pretty cool. The image, Cutie Skull, is from our sponsor MelJen's Design.

Music Saves My Soul Saturday

It has been quite a while since I played along with Marcia's Music Saved My Soul, I'm not really sure why since I can't do anything unless I have my music on. Well I figured I would play along today. I am sharing a video by Blue October since I saw them in concert on Sunday. 

I had a hard time picking a song, they are my favorite band and I want to share every song from every album with you, lol. I decided to pick "The Feel Again (Stay)" because this song and video have a very strong message.

I hope you enjoy and if you want to here more of their music you can click on my little music player on my sidebar. I warn you that there may be some bad language in some of their songs. I checked this one and didn't hear any. 

is a place for fathers, mothers and children who have dealt, or are dealing with, the issues of shared parenting and child custody to find their voice and speak their mind. 

Here are a few pics from the Blue October concert on Sept. 11,2011 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. They aren't the best quality but I wanted to share a few with you.

SISC 75 Purple and Black

Today there is a new challenge over at StampInsanity. This week we want to see your Purple and Black projects. I love this color combo, actually I love any combo with black but purple is my favorite color. I used this BoBunny paper that I bought over a year ago. I was hoarding it because it is so pretty but this challenge was the perfect occasion to use it.
